Merdeka Open House 2006: Calling All Food Bloggers

Let’s participate in the above organised by Babe in the City. No, you don’t have to go anywhere or open your house for guests. It is just a fun cooking event where you cook something according to the theme, post it on your blog and share it with others. Here’s the deal:

Malaysian Recipes Long Forgotten

Traditional recipes of any Malaysian ethnics that could have been long forgotten will be the focus of this year’s open house. I’m very sure there are many recipes out there that were sort of lost in transition in between the generations. So it’s time we gather around and savour some of these wonderful dishes of our forefathers.

Well we shall not limit the recipes based on your own ethnic but feel free to explore others since Malaysians are a muhibah lot. Now, all you need to do is to cook up a dish based on the theme. To be in the spirit, try not to buy store bought goodies, if you can’t cook, go charm your mom, dad, grandparents, brothers, sisters, aunties, uncles or whoever the cook in your family to cook the dish. Next, take a picture of it and write about the dish plus of course the recipe. Ahem if you can write your entry in BM, it’s all the better ahahaha but please don’t ask me do my rounding up in BM cos my BM sudah karat!

Post it up in your blog by 29th August 2006 but of course if you can do it earlier, it’s all the better to ease me in rounding up on 31st August 2006. Those who doesn’t own a blog but wish to participate, kindly do your write up and send it together with the picture to me. I’ll post it up for you. (please continue reading from Babe’s blog here)

Come one, come all, let’s join in the fun and whip up something from grandma’s kitchen! Now, I wonder what I should cook?
